I had such a strange day.
After coming home from work today, I had a bowl of cereal while listening/half watching a Let's Play by one of my favorite Let's Players (who tragically doesn't do them anymore; one of my future major Minecraft mod updates is themed after his content). It was of his Contra III: The Alien Wars "flawless" playthrough on hard difficulty. The previous time I happen to notice a flaw in the footage and only then did I realize all the footage was not truly authentic but the idea was there that he did play through the whole thing without dying. It just was not with the whole footage he actually shot. So near the beginning and end of each video, I watched for inconsistencies as I ate. The inconsistencies are there, but only if you study the videos critically.
Personally I don't think anything less of him because the entertainment is with what he is actually doing during the episodes rather than the statistics behind it. I like to listen
to the guy's videos to cheer me up sometime and the Contra III Let's Play is one of his shortest. He is definitely a good gamer. You just have to watch his play through of Kaizo/Kaizo 2 Super Mario World to know that.
Overall, when I got home I was in denial about a huge Intermediate Accounting II exam I had to take. Accounting with this particular instructor is consistently the longest and toughest of any class I have had. Eight problems and 200 minute limit doesn't seem all that impressively difficult, but it usually takes me most of the time.
In denial, I watched a little bit of the same Let's Player's series but with his Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Let's Play. Just a few episodes. Because of his two LoZ Let's Plays, I love their soundtracks. About a week or two ago, I happen to find a website where one guy made a ton of orchestral remixes to LoZ games, especially Ocarina of Time. So I listen to the lists a lot lately, even play it over the computer at the job I came home from today. The website: www.zreomusic.com/listen
I finally start to the dreaded Accounting exam with the LoZ remixes playing in order in the background. Nearly three hours into the exam, I finally get to problem #7 with the battle against Ganondorf playing and the opening line to the problem says: "Contra Corp. leased equipment from Zelda Company...."
Yah, I smiled pretty hard at that. I wrote a compliment to my instructor on that problem, since he writes all the problems himself. I have not noticed him making references in his exams often but I definitely noticed this one.
I have become quite burned out on my Minecraft modding and already I feel burned out on art commissions for no apparent reason. We will see what the immediate will bring.
